Services at the Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center

The Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center (FAPLIC) is an integral component of the community of Fairbanks which supports the appropriate use and enjoyment of Alaska's public lands and resources through "one-stop shopping" for public lands information, trip-planning assistance, and resource education. The interagency partnership embodied as FAPLIC encourages visitors and residents to seek meaningful, safe and enjoyable experiences on public lands and inspires to conserve and sustain the natural, cultural and historic resources of Alaska. This center was established by an act of Congress in Section 1305 of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980.

Two rafters stand in shallow water at the edge of the Charley River headwaters. One red and one blue raft are loaded with paddles and gear. Vegetation is brown and the ground mucky. Did You Know?
The Charley River is the only completely protected watershed in National Park lands at 1.1 million acres. Arising at 4,000 ft of elevation, the Charley River runs 105 miles before emptying into the Yukon River 700 ft above sea level, for an average gradient of over 31 ft/mi.
